The idea I had in my head was of someone cycling around the old country......
.......and exploring the old houses and shops. Previous post about this is here
The bicycle was fun to appliqué, but not easy to top stitch. I guess I should have thought of that !
I did minimal quilting on this. Just a bit of texture on the 'wall'. It was fun bringing an idea to life with fabric. Sure hope the recipient likes it too : )
For a previous swap I was in, I got this cute mini quilt from Nicole. I had said my favourite colour combo is turquoise and orange ( thus the bicycle ) and my favourite block is the churn dash. She made me this
Those churn dash blocks measure 3 1/2"
I just love it. Thank you Nicole!
